Spent a couple of nights in Spring 2012. We city folks really enjoyed the peace and quiet. The village of East Sound is located nearby offering sumptious dining experiences. A sunset dinner at the legendary Rosario Resort overlooking Cascade Bay is not to be missed. We opted for the Goldfinch room and were pleasantly surprised by the lovely furnishings (including...

We stayed here for a couple of nights in the Hummingbird room during our recent weekend trip to Orcas Island. The room had a comfy bed with a large spacious bathroom (no bathtub in this particular room we stayed in which I point out in case that is important to you). The grounds were very serene with a lovely pond... More

This B&B is on beautiful Orcas Island where it's hard to go wrong, there is an amazing many course gourmet breakfast, and the hosts Carl and Sue take real pleasure in assuring that everything is first class. We definitely recommend it! If you're into birding, it's right on a birding wetland, and it's close to many island destinations such as... More

We went here for our 35th anniversary. It was wonderful. Off the road in the woods. Breakfasts were wonderful. The back deck was a wonderful place to watch birds. Proprietors Sue and Carl were wonderful. I can't wait to go again.

Otters Pond is hard to beat. My wife and I recently stayed for three days. All the reviews on here say it well. The rooms are clean as a whistle. Carl and Sue are terrific hosts.

The breakfasts were outstanding in quality and also healthy. The location was quiet and serene. Carl and Sue were friendly,helpful and provided the perfect environment for the quiet,peaceful surroundings. The island provides something for everyone and the hosts are experts on the activities. We would definitely return and bring friends/family.
